Can anyone tell me if McDonalds french fries are gluten-free in Canada? Their fact sheet appears to show no gluten. If they are gluten-free, has anyone ever had a problem after consuming them?

Thanx, Tracy

Hi there. I live in the US, but my Mom (who is also Celiac, isn't the gene pool fun?) lives in Canada and has no problems with McD. fries. As far as worrying about the server having gluten on his hands, as far as I've seen McD. fries are always put in the little boxes with a special scoop, and are never touched by the employees. I personally am glad to know that thier fries are gluten-free, because that is something that doesn't need to be messed with, I mean potatoes aren't really that expensive...

Yes! Ive had a severe reaction to Mc Donald's fry's. I live in Barrie ONTARIO CAN. and the other day thinking that their fry's were okay had the super size. 10 mins, which is the normal time I react to gluten was all it took after eating the fry's. I had a really bad migrane and was sick to the point where i was throughing up every hour. It took me 2 weeks to recover from that incident. Now ive heard good things and bad things on Mc Donalds and i guss it all depends on how everyone react's. Everyone is diffrent. I still do not know why I was so sick and I know it was the fry's on the account that's all i had to eat all day. I hear that they coat their fry's in TBHQ. Somthing we Celiac's cant have. I got that information from the U.S. web site. In Canada im not sure if it would be the same here. If anyone know's more about that let me know cuz i would love to hear about it!

My mom works in McD's in the US and the grease used for the frys is the same grease that they use for the chicken nuggets. And there's breading on the nuggets, right? So im i would say that the fries are bad! If im wrong im sry.

I live in kansas....and here they bake their nuggets in these little toaster oven things. Their fries are in dedicated fryers. The hashbrowns are the only other thing that go into them.

But some hash browns have wheat starch in the coatings, so be careful!

The fries and the hashbrowns in the US are gluten free. I don't know about Canada, but I can't see why they would be different. Only some restaurants use dedicated fryers though, so it is a good idea to ask. Especially if it is a McDonald's
Express station like they have at malls and gas stations. They don't have the room for dedicated fryers, so those places are not usually safe to have the fries/hashbrowns.

God bless,
